Off-Topic: Morning Madness At Costco

By Adam Pick on December 22, 2008

With the recession lingering, I’m doing my best to save, save, save money this holiday season.

That said, I went to Costco fifteen minutes before it opened on Super Saturday. My strategic thought was, “Go early Adam! You’ll be the first one there with pristine dibs on all the goodies.”

It turns out that my brilliant idea, was… ummm…. not so brilliant.  When I drove up to the bulk superstore, my immediate thought was, “Yikes!”

 

 

As you can see in the picture above, I’m no genius.

I waited in a line of a few hundred, Super Saturday shoppers just to get into the store. I couldn’t believe it. By the time I made it to the register, the check-out lines were already 7-to-8 shopping carts deep.

Next time…. Amazon!

Keep on tickin!
